102nd post - Battle Games in Middle-Earth (nr. 61-65)!

Hello friends!

So, the aim of this 102nd post is to make a preview of the next 5 models that I'll be painting, but first, I wish to make a few considerations.

As some of you know (those who have been following my blog), since the beginning of this blog's journey, I've been painting the the Lord of the Rings miniatures that have been released with the Battle Games in Middle-Earth's issues, in 2002.
It has been an amazing jump start for my painting skills and a real pleasure giving hobby.
At the time I acquired the collection, I made a little research about the whole thing and found that, in my country (Portugal), DeAgostini only had published the first 65 numbers (out of 91).
Sad, yes, but if it weren't for it, I'd never had entered the hobby "thing".
This fact needed to be mentioned because... well, the next five models are to be the last models of the collection I bought!

So... let's get to them:

These guys are the next/last ones:
  • 61: Strider
  • 62: Bilbo Baggins
  • 63: Gollum
  • 64: Éomer on foot
  • 65: Théodred on horse


Bilbo Baggins


Éomer on foot

Théodred on horse

And that's it!!! I'm very excited to paint this guys... they all look great (let's see if I can make them justice)!
Thank you everyone for watching!
Happy hobbying!

  5. Hi i have just purchased issue 1-91 plus the 3 bonus issues alongside the battle for pellenor fields with the aim of completing the collection to a good display standard within a year.~250 plastic models and 80 metal... Do you have your collection on display? Any tips for neating the metal moulds? Love the vids. Ill send you a photo when i have completed my quest . Cheers richard

  6. I am impressed. I don't think Ive met anyone who knows as much about this subject as you do. You are truly well informed and very intelligent. You wrote something that people could understand and made the subject intriguing for everyone. Really, great blog you have got here. thegreatwar.net

  7. On the off chance that Battle for Mars is from Advance Wars,downloaf game mod apk at that point Military Madness is from TurboGrafx-16. This Android game is really a refreshed adaptation of the referenced support game which was discharged barely any years back.

  8. I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post. Best Games 2020
